Abstract

The solitary predatory wasp Cerceris fumipennis Say provisions its nests with beetles from the family Buprestidae. State and federal officials in New England, USA collected Buprestidae prey from C. fumipennis starting in 2009. At least 220 colonies of C. fumipennis were monitored as part of the cooperative survey. A total of 6,044 individual Buprestidae from 12 genera and 69 species were collected during surveys conducted during 2009–2011. In total, 56 new state records for 40 species are documented in New England through July 2018. Rarefaction analysis of data pooled by state suggested that more species potentially collected by C. fumipennis exist but were not sampled.
